This New Year's Day, while my husband watched football games, I hung out with the Yorkies. They helped me compile "Yorkie-Speak," a list of canine vocabulary words. If you are owned by a furry person, chances are your dogs have given you a list, too.
#1: New Baby
Translation: My mother is going to Publix to buy me a squeak toy. Yay!
#2: I won't wear a dress!
Note: This sentence is often accompanied by the "stink eye."
#3: Another cookie, please?
#4: I need beauty sleep.
#5: Go outside
Translation: I love grass and wind and things that smell good and rank.
